Notes: Although most musicians are aware that the harmonic series (also known as the natural scale) is responsible for triadic harmony and the drive to make the diatonic scale equally tempered, most are not aware that the natural scale has a melodic function as well. In this book, Eivind Groven discusses the willow flute (seljefloyta) and its melodic function and influence on intonation of Norwegian folk music. This subject is also discussed in The Celtic Lyre (new edition, 2012 only), published by Siol Cultural Enterprises, ISBN: 978-0-9869659-6-8.
